With the recent job layoffs in USA , the scenario looks rather bleak for H1B aspirants.Maybe the market will pick up in another 6 months or so,but it may not reach the dizzying heights it was a while ago.
So now is Europe a better (or equally good) option for H1B jobs?

You won't need a H1B visa to work in europe .. that just for the USA ... but I expect there is some equivilent.
I know from my own observations that Java skills are still very much in demand in Europe ... well i can really only speak for the UK but I expect it's similar in other countries.
I work with quite a few people from all over the world (USA, India, Pakistan, East Asia, Australasia, as well as other European countries).
I've heard that Ireland (particualrly Dublin) has a very high demand for Java developers as the market there is growing rapidly and the city itself is one of the fastest growing cities in the world.

I was curious about job oppurtunities in Ottawa,Canada. I recently read in one of the tech magazines that it had made great strides. Also , the quality of life offered by ottawa is good (as quoted by the magazine). Any comments on that ?

Do we have anybody currently working in Europe who can shed some light on this?
Also,what is the process one needs to undergo in order to have a work permit to work in Europe? Or is that country-dependent?

I work in the UK (Europe) but that is my country of birth. I'm not really too sure about what processes need to be traversed to get a work permit here but I highly expect that you need to apply to a specific country ... although I may well be wrong. I'll look into it!

Here's some info I got from here http://www.britainusa.com/consular/visas/visas.asp
but you should really check with your local British Embassy.
Admission to the UK for Employment
If you are in one of the following groups, you do not need a work permit to come to the United Kingdom for employment:

A European Economic Area National.
A commonwealth citizen, one of whose grandparents was born in the United Kingdom and Islands. (If you are such a person and want to come to the UK to take or seek employment you should apply for UK Ancestry Employment, see below under permit free employment).
Someone whose employment falls into one of the categories listed above under �Permit Free Employment�.
Anyone else who is subject to immigration control needs a work permit to come to the United Kingdom solely for employment.
Work Permits
Work permits are issued by the department for Education and Employment. A work permit relates to a specific individual and a particular job. Regular work permits are only issued for jobs involving a high level of skill and experience for which no resident labour is available in the United Kingdom or elsewhere in the European Union. Permits may, however, be issued to enable overseas nationals to come to the UK for training or work experience.
You cannot apply for a work permit. This has to be done on your behalf by an employer in the United Kingdom who wants to employ you.
You should not travel to the United Kingdom to start work before you have received the permit. If you arrive in the United Kingdom without a work permit to take up a job for which requires a work permit, you will be refused admission. If you are a visa national you will need a visa in addition to your work permit.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
